    I wouldn't be all that surprised. There is a table of Greek prosodic
    accents in Grove's Dictionary of Music (a standard reference work)
    which baffled me, because they looked nothing like the Greek accents
    I was familiar with, until I realized that the entire column of
    accent symbols had been rotated 180 degrees much as was done with the
    Ethiopic letters.
